    The River Liffey, which comes into play on nearly every hole on the Kildare’s challenging Palmer Course, cuts a mile-long path through the 550-acre property, providing a scenic backdrop to the resort’s fairways, gardens, and Georgian-style Straffan House. The interiors, however, are distinctly Irish, replete with Waterford crystal chandeliers that illuminate the perfectly balanced entrance hall and elaborate staircases. Accommodations Sixty-nine guest rooms and suites in Straffan House, and 23 courtyard suites. Recreation Golfing on two Arnold Palmer–designed courses (the Palmer and the Smurfit), salmon and brown-trout fishing on the River Liffey, clay-target shooting, and horseback riding. Dining The Byerley Turk features French food with a hint of an Irish upbringing. Worthy Diversion Just five miles away, Abbeyfield Farm in the village of Clane has one of the foremost cross-country courses in Ireland. Rates From $370 to $1,290 for guest rooms and most suites, $9,350 for the Viceroy or Imperial suites.
